26. Let us return to Saint Paul. We should not run away from the world, we are in it. What we do have to do is honor Him, to serve Him. It is a great paradox of Catholic life (Etienne Gilson, “L’intelligence au service de Christ-Roi“, in Christianisme et philosophie, Paris: Vrin, 1949, pp. 142 et seq.).

We know that the world is doomed, because it is the denial of grace. The world separates nature and God. It is naturalism, which damages our intelligence and dents our will.

Juan Fernando Segovia, Consejo de Estudios Hispánicos Felipe II
